About 10 years ago I used to work at a little chocolate shop right in the heart of downtown Kirkland. Bernard C Chocolates. The shop was there for probably over 10 years and sold some of the most delicious chocolates in the area.
Just down the street there was a cute little Greek restaurants with excellent bakliva and garlic sauce. Couldn't really help customers after that sauce though without some serious mouthwash! I don't know if the restaurant is still there but along this road the shops have come and gone and no matter what pops up in their place there is usually quite a buzz around it.
There is always room for a sweet stroll along the waterfront and more Kirkland condos and homes are popping up here as well. Whether feeding the ducks or taking a dip in Lake Washington in the summer, the activities are literally endless.
Just up the street is one of the hubs of great activities. With a movie theater, restaurants, wine shops and boutiques right across the street from amazing Kirkland homes one may never have to leave the city.
To tour some of these great homes and Kirkland condos, please see the folks at Hallmark Realty. They personally offer private tours and information on Kirkland homes and real estate.
